Rather Wobbly Cupcakes, from The Shepherd’s Crown by Sir Terry Pratchett!
Ah yes, Nanny Ogg really isn’t a woman to mince her words, and Magrat isn’t a woman to mince her thoughts, neither:
There was also a plate of rather wobbly cupcakes. [It appears a fact of life that if two or more well-born ladies should gather together, cupcakes are essential. Otherwise the ceiling might fall on them.]
‘I made these,’ Letitia said proudly. 'Yesterday. From a recipe in Nanny Ogg’s new cookbook - you know, A Lot of What You Fancy Makes You Fat.’
She coloured a little, and her hand crept self-consciously to her bodice, where it was clear that when curves were being handed out, Letitia had been at the end of the line.
Magrat took a cake by its little case rather carefully. Some of Nanny Ogg’s recipes could include … unusual ingredients, and she already had three children.
